Question about 1988 Chrysler New Yorker

2 Answers

Stalling out ~ over heating ~ no A/C

I pray someone out there can help us. We are stuck in West VA an want to go home. To make a very long story short the mechanic can't guarantee that replacing the fuel pump will fix the problem. At this point, I'd like to feel safe driving driving back home ~ and not keep having to pay for tows & having to rely on total strangers for help. This '88 Chrysler New Yorker has only been sitting since March, only a few months. When we got in to start it up. it kept stalling out. we put a gas can of gas in the car. reved up the engine for a while. then we managed to drive for a little while. we check all the belts, all ... the fuel filter & the vacuum hose has been replaced. We've put gas treatment in the tank...sprayed some carb cleaner. rewired the fan to cool down the radar so now that seems to of solved that issue. but it's still caughing & choking and stalling out sometimes. The A/C is not working either but we feel that is a seperate challenge in it self. Compresure maybe, Who knows ~ I'll drive in the heat at this point... I just want to know what to fix, so we can go home. 9:30pm Wed. June 11,'08 Thank You So very much 4 your help. God Bless you, Diane

I had a later model new yorker ... 1994 i think. that did something similar. after engine heated up, it would stall as i came to a stop. then wouldnt start until the engine cooled off. It turned out to be the crankshaft position sensor. hopefully this can help someone, as i am a little late for diane, :( sorry

Hi, I just had the very same situation on a '90 New Yorker. The fuel pump has gone bad in your car, have it replace and that should take care of it. As for the A/C, yes, that could be a different challenge. Don't let the fuel level get below 1/8 th of a tank. Fuel is what keeps the fuel pump cool.

    What would cause the idle to drop to the point of cutting off? Would that be the throttle position sensor or what?

    fuel filter is somewhat built into the pump and installed within the tank. Periodic replacement isn't necessary and I'm sure the filter itself and getting a mechanic to drop the tank will be very expensive.

    what did you do with a "tune up" ? gotta go retrace your work and make sure the plug gaps are correct etc.

    if a check engine light went on after your "tune up" then you need to find the trouble code with a scanner and that will help you in the direction you need to go. Free trouble code scan at my local autozone or advance auto parts or even aamco transmission shops

    Ecu fuse blew and was informed to change the fuel pump truck wouldnt start without a new fuse,but when i run it over 60 the truck boggs down getting ready to stall? any help? on what it could be?...thanks...

    It may help to tell what engine size????? So......did you replace the pump? Whats the fuel pressure? Did you replace the filter? Maybe the pump, but its all guesses with out you telling us the whole story. If the pump is blowing fuses, thats your first clue, Replace it.

    Stalls when i put it into gear

    Is the check engine light on? If so I would have a scanner put on it and have the codes read.. Otherwise it may be hard to determine. It may be the vacuum actuator on the tranny. It would be good idea to have fuel pressure checked and also any vacuum hoses.

    Push button 4wd not working

    It sounds like someone has changed into 4wd at speed and broken the internals of the system. Check the relays and fuses first but it sounds more serious than that. If it drives in 2wd put it in reverse an circle listen for any undue noises.
